Rosa Nunez and Carlos Ordaz realized their dream of having their own farm. They are dedicated to planting vegetables and distributing them directly to the local markets. With much effort and help from programs like VSU Small Farm Outreach Program and USDA NRCS and FSA their dream came true. We will take a tour of the farm and the production plant during the field day.
To attend the Field & Farm Tour, please call Mery Caldwell at (804) 481-0425.
